FlyOver immersive flying journey coming to Chicago’s Navy Pier

FlyOver, an immersive flying journey from global attractions and hospitality company Pursuit, is bringing its awe-inducing experience to Chicago’s Navy Pier. The multi-sensory attraction transports guests to the planet’s most epic places as they soar over iconic locations and natural wonders.

Anticipated to debut in spring 2024, FlyOver will be located directly across from the Chicago Children’s Museum at the west entrance of the landmark waterfront destination. The attraction’s signature flying journey, set amongst the stunning architectural backdrop of Chicago, will showcase the city from an entirely new perspective, weaving stories of what makes the city formidable, through its people, places and cultures.

“The launch of FlyOver at Navy Pier will push the boundaries of escape, providing both locals and visitors with a truly unforgettable storytelling experience that showcases Chicago in ways never seen before,” said Lisa Adams, Vice President, FlyOver Attractions by Pursuit. “The signature flying journey, which will be filmed throughout Chicago this year, will use the power of unique perspectives, feelings of flight and complete sensory immersion to inspire wonder and help our guests soar up, over, under and around this incredible American city.”

A 65-foot spherical screen will surround guests as they glide on a flight journey through Chicago. The attraction uses a state-of-the-art moving platform with six degrees of motion that enable guests to feel every sweeping movement of the experience. Special effects including wind, mist and location-specific scents heighten the immersive experience as guests hang suspended with their feet dangling above stunning natural and urban wonders.

“As Navy Pier continues to evolve, FlyOver will transform the former IMAX theater space with its unique cutting- edge technology and breathtaking content to provide our Chicago community and out-of-town guests soaring new adventures,” said Navy Pier President and CEO Marilynn Gardner.

With construction of the attraction underway, the new Chicago experience will mark the fourth FlyOver experience, following the launch of FlyOver on the Las Vegas Strip in 2021.

FlyOver is currently recruiting for key sales, marketing and operations positions and will be hiring more than 60 new roles for the Chicago attraction.
